No More ‘Mr.’ Potato Head, Toy Now ‘Gender Neutral’

The classic toy brand “Mr. Potato Head” is getting a new “gender-neutral” name

Political correctness and cancel culture strikes again, and this time it’s in the toy industry. One of the most famous and well-known toys, “Mr. Potato Head” will soon simply just be “Potato Head.” As part of the toy company Hasbro’s rebranding being released this fall, the “new Potato Head playset” will “let kids create their own type of families including two moms or two dads.”

In a comical defense of the situation, editor in chief of the toy review site The Toy Insider Ali Mierzejewski said, “it’s a potato…But kids like to see themselves in the toys they are playing with.” Mierzejewski hopes dropping the “Mr.” from its name will encourage other companies to stop assigning genders to its toys. “It’s setting a new standard,” said Mierzejewski.

If a child saw themselves in a potato, there may be deeper issues. Nonetheless, “many toymakers have been updating their classic brands in recent years, hoping to relate to today’s kids and reflect more modern families” reports the Associated Press.

“GLAAD, an LGBTQ advocacy group, applauded the genderless toy potato” reports AP. “A genderless toy potato” most certainly is not a sentence we could have ever thought we would be writing about, but here we are. “Hasbro is helping kids to simply see toys as toys, which encourages them to be their authentic selves outside of the pressures of traditional gender norms,” said Rich Ferraro, GLAAD’s chief communications officer, in a statement.

    I am deeply saddened learning that “Mr potato Head” is now included and targeted in the cancel culture of our government. The Biden administration is continuing the OBama destruction of our country!! Beware America…..God will not sit back in silence for long and I pray His mercy on us all.

    When I go back to memory lane, my childhood. I did not enjoy “Mr. Potato Head”, I was board playing that game. The pieces were always getting lost. The overall concept of putting feature on a potato, did not appeal to me, anyway. STOP BUYING HASBRO TOYS!

    I wished everybody would see what a terrible oppression all this is: the gender crap, the racism which is kept on a constant lifeline by the left. It is based on the Marxist lie that everything good about society is all a form of oppression. Every time anyone promotes cultural Marxism, they use the same line claiming it is about freeing people from oppression. They revere Marx who let 4 of his children die from starvation because he refused to work a single day in his life; but he was not shy to take money from his friend Engels which came from the Engels family’s factory income! This is what we are supposed to embrace?

Shaq Denounces ‘Celebrity-Ness’ Says They are ‘Out of Their Freaking Mind’

Basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal had some harsh words for celebrities and declared he is not one

In an interview with the New York Post, basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal had some harsh words for celebrities and declared he is not one. “I denounce my celebrity-ness today. I’m done with it” O’Neal told the Post while discussing his new Kellogg’s deal.

“Celebrities are crazy. I don’t want to be in that category. They are. They’re going freaking insane. Don’t call me that anymore” said O’Neal. “These people are out of their freaking mind with how they treat people, what they do, what they say. That’s never been me. I never want to be looked at like that.”

O’Neal’s Kellogg’s deal consists of his own new Frosted Flakes cereal, Crispy Cinnamon Basketballs, and partnership with Mission Tiger, which will help over 60,000 middle-schoolers.

“The Mission Tiger program pledged to purchase new sports equipment, including uniforms, for students across the U.S. The Schools involved in the mission will take place in the six cities where O’Neal played over 19 seasons – Boston, Cleveland, Los Angeles, Miami, Orlando and Phoenix” reports The Post.

O’Neal wants to be remembered for his kindness, says the 49-year-old who grew up poor in New Jersey and says he tries to do random acts of kindness at least twice per week.

Everyone gets stereotyped but celebrities get stereotyped because most of them are “our of their damn mind.” He said. “I’m a regular person that listened, that followed their dreams, made it. But just because I made it don’t mean I’m bigger than you. Just because I made it don’t mean I’m smarter than you. Just cause I have more money than you don’t mean that I’m better than you.”

 I’ve never been that way and I never will be that way. So I don’t want to be in that category of people. When they talk about Shaq, what do you say? ‘He’s a nice guy.’ Because what else can you be? You’re either nice or you’re the A-word, and I definitely won’t be looked at as the A-word,” he said.

“I want people to say, ‘Bro, he’s nice. He didn’t have an entourage. His people didn’t take my phone because I took a picture and threw it.’”

Employees Completely Helpless as Shoplifters Walk Out With Thousands Worth of Goods at Oregon Lowes

Social media Twitter account @libsoftiktok which states in the bio it posts “all things insane & hypocritical” posted a one-minute video showing “2 people walk out of an Oregon Lowe’s with carts of stolen merchandise. Employees look on and are unable to do anything.”

As the video plays, words highlighted red appear that read, “INCREDIBLE STATE OF OREGON, USA” and “IF YOU KNOW THESE PEOPLE, PLEASE ALERT THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY.” The video takes place at a Lowes store and epitomizes the sad times we are in.

Within the first eight seconds of the video, the two robbers, with filled carts, simply stroll out of the store as if they were paying customers. The Lowes employee asks the men “can you show me the receipts?” The young man appears to flash something while saying “right here.”

The female employee then says “no, I don’t think so” knowing the men did not pay for the items. The two thieves continue to walk the carts out of the store and a second, elderly Lowes employee attempts to stop the men, shouting “hey” as he follows them.

The female employee stops the elderly male employee from pursuing the robbers saying, “it’s not worth it.” As the robbers have successfully exited the store, into the parking lot, the male recording the video then asks the employees, “doesn’t it suck you guys can’t do anything? I mean I think it’s just amazing.”

The video then shows the men in the parking lot throwing the stolen items into a red Subaru where it appears others were waiting to help. A voice can be heard explaining that the guys are packing the car with stolen goods, and another man explains it happens “every day.”

“Dude that’s thousands of dollars – I’m an electrician, bro” the videographer explains of the sheer amount of goods being stolen. The thieves close the back door and the videographer zooms in to the back of the car to show the “license tag” before the car speeds away. The red highlighted words “IF YOU KNOW THESE PEOPLE, PLEASE ALERT THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY” remained on the video the whole time.
